Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {with Coconut Oil}

I laughed out loud after Joe told me his superlative from the office holiday party: “Most likely to maintain his girlish figure by pawning off his wife’s baked goods on his coworkers!”  While I do like to send my baked creations to Joe’s office, I think we’re going to hold onto these guys.

Introducing Joe’s new favorite cookie: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {with Coconut Oil}

DSC_0707 They’re butter free, packed with chocolate chips and have a wonderful soft texture and subtle flavor from the coconut oil.  I like to bake with the coconut oil in a more solid form (like the texture of soft butter) but if your oil is more liquid (like melted butter) just be sure to chill your dough before baking or you’ll have oily, spreading cookies.

This recipe is sponsored by Tropical Traditions who sent me some of their fancy Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Please head over to this post to enter to win your own FREE quart (32 oz.) jar of  Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions –  a $40 value!

What to buy:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cup old fashioned whole rolled oats
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

What to do:

  • combine egg, coconut oil, sugars, vanilla, cinnamon, salt (I used my KitchenAid mixer)
  • add oats, flour, baking powder and chocolate chips, stirring to combine
  • chill dough in the refrigerator for an hour to prevent cookies from spreading when they hit the oven
  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • line cookie sheets with parchment, cooking spray or Silpats and using an icecream scooper or your hands, form mounds of about 3-4 tablespoons of dough each and pat down a bit, cookies should not spread much so you want to flatten them slightly
  • bake about 9 minutes, or until edges have set and the tops are just beginning to set, they firm up as they cool
